Texas Kay9 Nose Work

Corporal Cody Irby and Julie Kay Locke CPDT-KA are teaming up to share their joy of nose work and style of training in the civilian sport of scent work that has been sweeping the United States since 2008. Julie has been teaching scent work since 2011 and studied with the NACSW for over 4 years as a CNWI. Her mentor the late Ron Gaunt taught her the beauty of learning to explore and pursue with your dog and the mental and emotional fitness that goes with all.

She looks forward to taking you on a journey of heightened communication between you and your dog. Pearl will be there to share and show off her talent and ribbons she has earned in NACSW and USCSS.

Corporal Cody Irby is Julie's neighbor and began his professional K-9 career in 2012 when selected to be a K9 handler for the Pflugerville Police Department. His talents with Scorpio (Belgian Malinois) covers scent detection, tracking, and bite work. Cody and Scorpio were certified as a professional team under the National Narcotics Detector Dog Association, and re-certified annually through out their 5 year partnership. Scorpio is now retired and will be teaching and joining us in the fun game of Texas Kay9 Nose Work.
